New Pattern and a little Give Away

A couple of weeks ago I got a question from the very kind Janie, who asked me to make her a pair of skirt guards in rainbow colors. Because the yarn I usually use, didn’t have the right colors, I had to find something else. Here you can find a blog about my new yarn: Schachenmayr’s Catania.

Because the yarn has a different gauge, I couldn’t use the old pattern, so I designed a new one. Two rounds of small flowers, and a less repetition.


Janie was very happy with her Rainbow Skirt Guards, and because I liked them too, I made myself a pair too, but with a burst of colors, just the way I like it.


I guess my bike is ready for lots of sunny weather.


Of course I made a pattern; it’s in the shop 

And because I just feel like it, I’m going to give away a copy of this pattern. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I would like it if you are a follower of this blog. Make sure I can contact you if you are the lucky one.

I’ll draw a name at the end of the month.

Groetjes, Dorien

Ooh please put my name in the hat, I originally found your blog researching into skirt guards! I had just been given an ouma-fiets and my dear Dutch friend told me I needed a guard and wondered what she meant!
Thank you for such a delightful giveaway :)

I love these skirt guards, and my daughter has just the bike to match them!
I would love to win this pattern and make a pair for her.

Wow, perfect op onze oranje gezinstransportfiets! En na maanden verbouwing en de verhuizing komend weekend heb ik hopelijk weer tijd!!!!

Oh please include me. Skirt guards are not common here in Ireland so could start a new trend!

Oh wat staat dat leuk zeg! Mijn dochter heeft voor haar verjaardag in december een mooie fiets gekregen, maar daar zitten geen jasbeschermers op... Dus misschien moet ik eens van deze leukerds gaan maken? Ik doe dus graag mee met je give-away!
Groetjes Lizette
